Electric 100%. Having an oil pressure tube break is an experience I could have gone a lifetime without. I have used both VDO and Autometer gauges in my Jeeps and hot rods, without any inaccuracy issues or failures. They're not cheap, but you get what you pay for. I've never tried the "low end" electrical gauges...
You can get electrical gauges with full-sweep dials. They're not cheap, though.
I like the idea of dash mounted electrical units, and under-hood mechanical units. Saves you from having to keep going back to look at the dash while working under the hood. Might try that on my next project.
It's not what you buy, It's what you build
